    Wow stunning fish, you're the first person I've heard of owning one in a hobbyist tank. (As opposed to breeding to sell etc)

    Bet that was a pretty penny.

    Well congratulations!!!For those that love and follow Clown Fish/Damsel news it awesome to see these fish out and about more frequently.

    You'll definitely have to do updates.

    Such a great fish with a interesting history.

    Wow 225 is not bad at all. I thought it'd be way more. I'd be willing to pay more than that myself for one. Beautiful fish.

    like I said in a previous post the LFS tried pairing her with 4 or so smaller maroons a few standard and a few gold stripes all attempts failed could it be because it wasn't with another lightening? id love in the future to have a pair and buying her I knew that it may not ever happen but I figured it wouldn't hurt to ask for your opinions.....Are some fish to stubborn they wont pair up? or could it be because it wasn't another lightening? thanks for all the help in advance!
